Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

I'm iso-testing the pre-Alpha 3 i386 Live CD.

Performing the Entire Disc install resulted in this error, but of course there was nothing to migrate anyway.

Performing the Auto-Resize install I was not even offered the option of migrating from the existing installation.

In both instances I was presented with the same warning "ubi-migrationassistant fails w/exit code 141" and the option to retry, quit, or continue. Both times I chose to continue and the installation completed successfully.

I would not consider this to be a big problem but rather just a nuisance, perhaps something to be expected in a development release, but thought I should report it all the same.

OK this time I chose to stay in the Live Desktop so I'll try to attach a few logs.

I'll be glad to repeat this and attach more if needed, I'm just somewhat unsure what you might need.

Thanks for testing! I also get this error. Since this bug has enough information provided for a developer to begin work, I'm going to mark it as triaged and let them handle it from here. Thanks for taking the time to make Ubuntu better!

Just to add some additional info, I was also affected by this bug during the test of a localized (ca_ES.UTF-8) Lucid pre-Alpha3 installation.

In my case this caused the language packs not to get installed , although the locale was set up correctly. I also noticed that the package information did not seem to be up-to-date, either, and there seemed to be a problem refreshing it from es.archive.ubuntu.com. Temporarily changing to the main archive seemed to solve that particular issue.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.1.26

  * Specify migrationassistant's order as simply coming before summary,
    as setting it as coming after user-setup and partman was causing it
    to come after summary (LP: #526581).

  [ Jonathan Riddell ]
  * kde_ui.py: don't show integrated progress bar, it seems to cause a crash

  * kde_ui.py: Show progressDialog for install, still needed (LP: #526454)

Argh, I just had this rear it's ugly head with the i386 20100427.1 Live CD. I was performing an auto-resize install. Ubiquity version=2.2.23.

After "quitting" the install you can see what's mounted using "df":
